Your Guide to the Night Sky
Hello and welcome to Stargazing Tonight. This site is dedicated to teaching those who are interested in learning more about observing the night sky. The web is filled with sites which offer astronomical information about the planets, stars, and galaxies that exist in our universe. While learning about these natural wonders will give a greater appreciation for how amazing the universe is, there is nothing quite like going outside and seeing it for yourself with your own two eyes.
